Thank you for your interest and for spending time viewing my creative body of work!
I am a national media published commercial, lifestyle, and portrait artist who specializes in creating authentic child, preteen, and teen portraits, artistic theatre and dance portraits as well as natural newborn and motherhood images. I also accepts a small number of intimate weddings or elopements commissions yearly. My work has been published in local and major US publications, including the New York Times, GQ, Marie Claire, Parade, and Avenue Magazines, though the work I connect with and am most proud of are the ones that hang in the homes of the people that I get to know through my portraits.
I love creating authentic portraits with my subjects because they speak to the essence and spirit who they are, and is such an honor to create them. I inherently value vulnerability and authenticity in my relationships, and that is reflected in every image that I create, which I believe comes through in each one. I am an introverted, emotional artist; a fierce mother and loyal friend. I have an innate gift of seeing and connecting with others, not only in real life, but in the timing of my shutter release. Basically, I shoot from my heart, telling the layered story of humans in photographs.
My work can be described as soulful, quiet, textured, emotive, raw, imperfect.
It is a true honor to create a portrait of another human and I hope to get to know more about who you or your child is and to see if we are a good match for this creative process.
